I ,t Sierra Army Depot Nerlong, California --=-- November 2007 On September 25, 2007 Sierra Army Depot (SIAD) verbally requested an emergency permit to treat a M42 Grenade by open detonation in place, also known as "blow-ln-place" (BIP) treatment. The grenade was 3.25 inches long. and weighed 0.48 pounds. Approximately 4 ounces of C4 explosive donor material was used to ignite the detonation. An emergency permit was required for the requested treatment because SIAD's Open Detonation (CO) unit is undergoing closure, end the interim status authority for treatment has been terminated. The emergency treatment request came as a result of SIAD's discovery of the grenade dudng clean up effort of the Defense Marketing and Reutilization Office scrap metal yard conducted on September 25, 2007. Due to the item being located in the general work area, SIAD requested the approval be expedited to protect on-site personnel. Measures were taken to make the item and area as safe as possible. Traffic was detoured, the grenade was sand bagged, and a 200 foot exclusion area around the item was established at the time of discovery. SIAD determined that the grenade was too unstable for transportation or relocation to the existing on-site OD pits. In addition, the grenade was not suitable for treatment via a portable chamber, such as the "Donovan Chamber", due to the need for safety of onsite personnel and the inability to move the item. Therefore, treatment by an off-site facility was not feasible, and there was no alternative on-site treatment available. Based on the authority granted to the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), pursuant to California Code of Regulations (Cal Code Rags), title. 22. section 66270.61. DTSC agreed that there was a potential imminent and substantial endangerment to human health or the environment, and on September 25, 2007 DTSC gave SIAD verbal approval of the emergency permit due to the urgent need ,to proceed with treatment of the discovered grenade. A wdttan confirmation was provided to SIAD via e-mail on September 25, 2007. California Environmental Quality Act {CEQA) DTSC has determined that this emergency permit is exempt from the requirements of CEQA under Title 14, Cat Code Rags section 15269(c), "actions necessary to prevent or mitigate an emergency." A Notice of Exemption "(NEE) will be filed which starts a 35-day time pedod for any legal challenges to DTSC's CEQA determination for this emergency permit. This activity is necessary to mitlgata an emergency because the grenade was too unstable to store, handle, or ship off-site without posing a threat to property and human health.
